Presentation of risks and measures KÜBLER

To identify risks in our supply chain, we have conducted a risk analysis, both at country and supplier level. 

The analysis was based on the sector risks of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Promoting Responsible Supply Chains in the Apparel and Footwear Industry. Using these, the specific country risks were assessed based on reliable, external sources. For example, the ITUC Global Rights Index and the Environmental Performance Index were used as external sources. At the supplier level, mitigating measures and knowledge of actual negative impacts were used to determine the individual risk of each supplier. 

The identified risks were assessed and prioritised according to probability of occurrence, severity and our ability to influence. 

 In the risk analysis, we identified risks in the areas of working hours, wages and corruption in the ready-made garment companies and prioritised them accordingly. In order to counter these risks effectively and appropriately, we rely first and foremost on a personal exchange with our suppliers through regular visits and raising awareness of the negative impacts at management level. 

At the same time, we review our own purchasing practices for aspects that may increase the risks of working hours and wages. To ensure the effectiveness of our measures, we also use the selective review with social audits by independent third parties.

In the area of wet processes, the risks of hazardous chemicals, water consumption and pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions have been prioritised. In addition to compliance with local laws, we rely on education and training to educate on the handling of chemicals and reduction opportunities in water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions and minimise risks.

We also promote the implementation of OEKO-TEX® STeP certification among our suppliers who work in dyeing and finishing processes. In addition to social aspects, this certification also includes strict, ecological limits and addresses water consumption and pollution as well as GHG emissions.

We are confident that these measures will minimise our identified risks and enable us to further implement our high social and environmental standards in our supply chain.
